See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
– Ephesians 5:15-16
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
“You walk circumspectly as wise” should become our principles for action because there are full of evils or kinds of temptations in modern society. From the very beginning until now, God loves those who fear Him and shun evil and hates those who are wicked and promiscuous. Just as the people of Noah’s time who were licentious by nature, they forgot God’s teachings and enjoyed living in sin. Finally, they were destroyed by God with a flood. Sodom was filled with violence and promiscuity. The people of this city even wanted to kill the messengers of God and opposed God to a point that He couldn’t bear it, and He subjects this city to His wrath, destroying all that are of flesh and blood with the fire from heaven. The lesson of history gives us a warning. We should often pray before God and ask Him to protect and guide us to walk the way of fearing God and shunning evil. Meantime, we should learn to be wise: Avoid temptation.
God says, “Do not come into contact with things that can draw your heart away to the outside, and do not come into contact with people who can draw your heart away from God. Drop whatever it is that can distract your heart from being close to God, or stay away from it. That way is more beneficial to your life.” His words show us the path of practice. As long as we avoid those things that can attract us according to God’s words, foresee the evil and hide ourselves like a prudent man, and come before God often, draw near to God. Only when we practice God’s words can we live in the light. Let’s listen to A Cappella Worship Song “Praise the New Life”. Thank God for His protection and guidance that allow us to walk on the right path in life.
